Nebraska FootballIn less then 24 hours Nebraska will face off against Iowa State in Ames. It will be interesting to see if the Huskers build off their loss down in Lubbock last Saturday or if they will play sluggish. As a team they will be trying to break a three game losing streak and pick up their fourth victory of the season.

For a victory the Huskers are going to have to be able to run the ball. I think it is that simple against the Cyclones. The offensive line needs to cut down on the penalties and open up holes for the running backs. I expect Marlon Lucky and Roy Helu Jr. to both be around 60-75 yards rushing each with Quentin Castille adding another 30-40 yards. It all comes down to how well the line is blocking and if they stop with all the holding penalties.

Reports are saying that Cyclones will try to slow down the Huskers similar to what the Huskers did to Texas Tech last week. I don’t see that working because the Husker defense will step up and make some plays. Iowa State cannot pass the ball like Tech did last week, and they can’t even run the ball as good. The Huskers will shut down the run and force Iowa State to pass which will cause turnovers in my opinion.

The Huskers should have Phillip Dillard and Cody Glenn both back at linebacker but expect to see Matt Holt and Blake Lawrence in there as well.

My prediction: Huskers 35 Iowa State 21
